𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒃𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒆𝒔𝒔✨​​​​​​​​
It doesn’t matter whether you have a huge brick and mortar location or work out of a tiny suite, the power of your hands, skin knowledge, unique personality and high level of care is why people come to you✨​​​​​​​​
I took 8 months away of the treatment room to move away from Colorado, relocate to New Mexico, expand my skincare line and now focusing on my artisan skincare lab - 𝒄𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒏𝒆𝒘 𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒎𝒖𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔✨​​​​​​​​
It’s been a lot of unknowns and change, but it always come back to the main point that is central to this work in the first place -𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉𝒚 𝒔𝒌𝒊𝒏, 𝒄𝒍𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒖𝒍𝒕𝒔✨​​​​​​​​
There is no limit of how you can help people as a service provider in the beauty industry✨​​​​​​​​
You can even step away, re-evaluate your path and trail-blaze a new one if you feel like that’s a smart, intuitive move for your business and your soul✨​​​​​​​​
I just felt like people needed encouragement in this area, to step out in bravery and trust themselves more✨


𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈’𝐯𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐬𝐮𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝟏𝟓 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬✨​​​​​​​​
If you make it look easy, people will assume you don’t work. That’s ok.​​​​​​​​
80% of the work you do will be behind the scenes. The magic that goes into making the “experience” unique is your personal touch and people feel that.​​​​​​​​
Having moved 10 locations since 2008, if your clients love you and your products, they will follow you wherever you go.​​​​​​​​
It’s possible for every catastrophic event to occur and still be successful.​​​​​​​​
You may become an expert at skin, yet continue learning things that you never knew. It might feel like you’re starting all over, even at the top of your game.​​​​​​​​
Scientific discoveries about skin will change every decade and can even contradict themselves. Rely on science, but also your own anecdotal, intuitive, experiential proven results that is your own special sauce.​​​​​​​​
I believe having your own product line will make you standout. I’ve seen tons of “popular” professional lines go out of business, reformulate, discontinue, go direct to consumer, dilute or merge with companies you might not agree with. You don’t want all those eggs in that basket.​​​​​​​​
The client relationships are invaluable. When you realize you’ve helped someone through multiple decades, changing skin concerns and life experiences, the connection is deep and reciprocal. They should care as much for you as you do for them.​​​​​​​​
If someone isn't a good match to work with, let them go. Being booked from day 1 by having high standards is possible. ​​​​​​​​
Comment below if there is anything you resonate with✨


𝑷𝒐𝒘𝒆𝒓-𝑯𝒐𝒖𝒔𝒆 𝑫𝒖𝒐’𝒔✨​​​​​​​​
In my opinion it’s pointless to use a skincare routine without ​​​​​​​​
these 2 𝑽𝑰𝑻𝑨𝑳 𝑷𝑰𝑬𝑪𝑬𝑺​​​​​​​​
𝑫𝒂𝒚𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆 𝑽𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒎𝒊𝒏 𝑪 & 𝑵𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒍𝒚 𝑹𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒐𝒍​​​​​​​​
These targeted potent, corrective serums are scientifically proven to preserve, strengthen and make the skin appear more healthy and youthful.​​​​​​​​
Around the clock all day Vitamin C is triggering fibroblast activity to get that sluggish collagen to start plumping. Goodbye fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots and dull skin.​​​​​​​​
In the same vein, while you sleep your retinol is hard at work increasing cell turnover, minimizing pores, brightening glycated, dull skin, smoothing texture and increasing firmness to reveal an opulent glow that can’t be faked.​​​​​​​​
The perfect couple. Don’t use one without the other. They belong together.​​​​​​​​
Please make sure to use a daily sunscreen to protect and maintain your results✨​​​​​​​​


I’m turning 47 tomorrow. I thought I’d share some things I like about getting older as an Esthetician.

I’ve been using professional skincare for 20 years and it shows. I’m falling in love with my mature skin and learning new ways to care for it.

Menopause hit this year and knocked me off my feet for a bit. I’m over the “bad” part (unbearable hot flashes, cranky pants) Now it’s just NO periods and NO PMS which is an absolute dream.

I’m leaning into my hard earned wisdom phase, while still finding ways to continue learning and staying young at heart.

My inner child’s imagination is fully activated and the creativity is never-ending.

I’m more accepting of my mid-life body that’s a little softer and curvier. When they say you start to feel more comfortable in your skin it’s so true. My younger self was more insecure and critical of herself.

I feel more direct, less lenient to put up with bs, better at protecting myself and my boundaries.

I cut the fluff out of my life, and don’t engage with energies that try to stop me from being my most authentic self. I take up space and I’m learning to stop apologizing so much.

I have more grace to give to myself and others.

I feel grateful to be healthy, alive, thriving and in honest pursuit of my path and purpose in life.

In an industry that’s obsessed with youth, and tries to keep us in fear of aging, i choose to let my age become an honor✨

What their skin needs, what products they’ve been using

Whether they are following the home-care routine

If they are doing the post-procedure steps

What ingredients need to be added, or taken away

We just know, it’s not a judgement - it’s an expertly trained eye type of thing

We are here to help your skin with our skilled hands, knowledge and experience with a touch of intuition, a high level of care, and a results oriented mindset at the forefront of our detective work

Nothing goes unseen, unnoticed, dismissed, unvalued

We know the investment you put into your products, the time and energy you carve out to do your morning and night routine, how hard it is not to fall asleep in your makeup

We know you’re pulling that 80/20 weight by doing the work, following the steps, trusting our guidance and getting those results

Your skin is literally what we fall asleep thinking about, what we wake in the night obsessing about, and what we spend our day treating and learning about so we can stay on top of our game and always have an answer for what you need

Thank you for trusting us, and giving us back that good energy exchange

As long as we feel that - we will never stop doing our best for you✨

I cannot use synthetic fragrances because I’m allergic, so natural plant botanicals are the only way for me to add beautiful aromas to my skincare products. ​​​​​​​​
When done properly using high quality essential oils in small, subtle doses, I prefer this tremendously over unscented products.​​​​​​​​

Please do not apply lavender essential oil directly to the skin, make sure to use high quality formulations that adhere to strict dermal limits for skincare.​​​​​​​​
𝑪𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒕𝒏𝒆𝒚 𝑷𝒂𝒓𝒌𝒉𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝑺𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒄𝒂𝒓𝒆 Lavender Cleansing Lotion contains high quality lavender in a decadent creamy cleanser that is the perfect makeup remover and first cleanse in any routine.​​​​​​​​
You’ll feel like you’ve brought the spa home💜🌾


Helping 1000’s of people learn how to love and care for their skin through the course of their lives has become my main passion🤍​​​​​​​​
I receive testimonials all the time from people saying they no longer have to wear makeup and feel confident showing their skin without filters, or can’t believe their melasma is gone, or that they never received compliments on their skin until they began using my products🤍​​​​​​​​
To give someone this gift of confidence and self-love is beyond anything I could imagine. Thank you for supporting my small business so that I can continue to provide high quality skincare products and Esthetician guidance for my beloved clients and customers🤍​​​​​​​​
You are the reason I do this, the results, your feedback, 15 years of continued loyalty- it’s everything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart🤍​​​​​​​​

Welcome to my high altitude skincare studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico where you can experience total skin rejuvenation with my 𝑺𝒊𝒈𝒏𝒂𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆 𝑻𝒊𝒅𝒂𝒍 𝑮𝒍𝒐𝒘 𝑻𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕✨​​​​​​​​
This elevated facial experience is a multi-faceted hybrid blend of clinical results and therapeutic relaxation. It includes a fully customized facial, derma-planing, enzymatic exfoliation, extractions, lymphatic drainage, decadent facial massage and oxygenating mask.​​​​​​​​
It is finished with an antioxidant brightening peel and hydrating serum infusion for a visually lifted, radiant glow that will take your skin to new heights.​​​​​​​​
A prescribed home-care product regimen must be used in conjunction with this advanced facial technique both pre & post maintenance. ​​​​​​​​
It is meant to be done quarterly for optimal results and is 90 minutes in length. ​​​​​​​​

𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐤 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐯𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐝✨​​​​​​​​
Growing up I often remember not having enough food, money, safety, or shelter at times.​​​​​​​​
As a trailer park kid, I had a “poverty” mindset and things I wanted or needed were always out of my reach it seemed.​​​​​​​​
Spirituality and deep faith helped me to find a more abundant mindset in my late 20’s that was followed by a succession of hard-earned achievements- paying my way through college, getting my art degree, becoming an Esthetician and starting my own business. ​​​​​​​​
It felt like breakthroughs began happening when I decided that my "cup runneth over” and started seeing the blessings overflow in every area of my life.​​​​​​​​
I also learned about financial wisdom from the bible. I’m paraphrasing, but this is something that became a mantra for me. ​​​​​​​​
“Live below your means so that you always have what you need and more to give and bless others with.”​​​​​​​​
I bought a tiny house, and land in Costa Rica to build on, started spending 3 months a year there, planted fruit trees, got solar, reduced my footprint, spent more time walking beaches, dancing, being creative and making skincare products for my clients. Feeling free and alive.​​​​​​​​
The less I focused on generating income, the more wealth began to grow exponentially in my life, and not just financially. ​​​​​​​​
It may take sacrifice, facing fears, letting go of things you think you need - but as you start to simplify and things become more clear, everything in the periphery will fade so you can focus on what is important to reach your dream life.​​​​​​​​
I hope you find it✨

◽️No more separate brick & mortar saves 40K or more a year. ​​​​​​​​
◽️Since in-clinic treatments are only 10% of my business for select, golden clients - it’s nice to have my treatment room set up and ready when a client comes into town.​​​​​​​​
◽️My home is clean, quiet, peaceful and set up like my spa in Colorado so it has the same feel but with southwest undertones in my adobe home.​​​​​​​​
◽️It serves as my private spa office where I ship and pack daily orders, write skincare content and communicate with clients and customers.​​​​​​​​
◽️Radiant heat flooring in the winter without socks is basically heaven.​​​​​​​​
◽️Ojo Santa Fe Hot Springs Resort is only 12 minutes away if you feel like soaking.​​​​​​​​
◽️The best green chili in the world, and 100’s of restaurants close-by.​​​​​​​​
◽️It’s only 2 hours from the Colorado border, with an audiobook it’s a beautiful drive.​​​​​​​​
𝑰𝒇 𝒊𝒕 𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒔 𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝑰’𝒎 𝒂𝒔𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒕𝒐 𝒗𝒊𝒔𝒊𝒕, 𝑰 𝒂𝒎! ✨​​​​​​​​

Fluff N’Buffs at Resort Spa’s (Most peaceful phase)​​​​​​​​
Turn N’Burns (Most rewarding phase)​​​​​​​​

Starting a Clinical-Grade Skincare Line (best phase)​​​​​​​​
E-Commerce, Packing & Shipping (Surprisingly fun phase)​​​​​​​​

This double cleansing duo is perfect for normal to dry, combination or breakout- prone skin. It will especially target mild acne, hyperpigmentation, melasma or aging concerns.​​​​​​​​
🌼𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒅𝒇𝒍𝒐𝒘𝒆𝒓 𝑯𝒆𝒓𝒃𝒂𝒍 𝑾𝒂𝒔𝒉🌼 is a soothing gel cleanser infused with anti-inflammatory and brightening chamomile that contains powerful polyphenols. This heavenly antioxidant cleanser contains many other beneficial properties such as being bactericidal, antiseptic, refreshing and is great for removing mineral makeup and mascara.​​​​​​​​
🍃𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒐𝒘𝒃𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝑪𝒍𝒂𝒓𝒊𝒇𝒚𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑪𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒏𝒔𝒆𝒓🍃 contains salicylic acid in a coco-lipid delivery system that is non-irritating to effectively exfoliate away excess dermal pigment from melasma or sun damage while brightening and smoothing texture for any age concerns like acne, fine lines or wrinkles.​​​​​​​​
These P.H. balanced, concentrated cleansers are free of SLS, synthetic fragrance, parabens, and are cruelty-free.​​​​​​​​


Without getting too geeky, I want to talk about one of my favorite ingredients in skincare.​​​​​​​​
I’ve been fascinated with wound-healing since I discovered a long time ago that the inside of the mouth never ages, wrinkles or scars. (Thanks Bob Heiman)​​​​​​​​
The constant stream of regenerative proliferation of nutritive b vitamins secreted in human saliva enzymes are responsible for this.​​​​​​​​
It’s a constantly regenerative environment not subject to cellular mutation like the rest of the human body that succumbs to extrinsic aging.​​​​​​​​
So with that being said, I’m obsessed with ingredients that help to slow this degradation process, or like in wound healing - increase the body’s ability to heal itself, rejuvenate and self-protect.​​​​​​​​
Since all skin disorders like acne, hyperpigmentation and aging are caused by inflammation, I love ingredients that have been clinically tested and proven to decrease “stress” and encourage barrier health and strength in the skin cells.​​​​​​​​
Courtney Parkhill Skincare uses chromanol which is used to heal damaged skin cells, is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant rich and anti-carcinogenic as a defense mechanism against pathogens that cause disruptive pre-mature aging and skin disorders.​​​​​​​​
Think of it like if superhero vitamin c, emollient vitamin e had a non-toxic baby that was a hydroquinone healthy alternative to reverse hyperpigmentation, increase collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ​​​​​​​​
She does it all. A powerhouse of healing, correcting, protecting, hydrating, calming and glowing.​​​​​​​​
When you use CPSkincare, know that you are using the highest quality performative ingredients that I ethnically and personally believe in.


𝑾𝒉𝒚 𝑪𝒖𝒔𝒕𝒐𝒎𝒊𝒛𝒆 𝒀𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝑺𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒄𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝑹𝒐𝒖𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒆?

Because my 60 year old client living in Alaska working on dryness/anti-aging is different from my 30 year old scuba diving client living in Hawaii working on melasma.

Completely different skincare routines.

Or my male client with cystic acne on 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐄𝐱𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐏𝐚𝐝𝐬 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲 to reverse hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores, but his wife only using them 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡 for her sensitive, dry skin for brightening purposes.

Same product used at different frequencies for a different outcome.

Different skin types, different skin concerns and different geographical landscapes need professional customization.

I love having a product for every person, season, geographical climate or skin issue.

Visit and let me create a beautifully inspiring skincare routine that works just for you.


𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐨𝐥𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬🌙

The southwest arroyo has a powerful, peaceful energy that has been very healing and grounding for me.

So much rest, reflection & metamorphosis.

The land vibrates in ancient tones that aligns with where I’m at in this phase of life.

The arctic rockies were a time of empowerment, self-realization and finding my anchor. I’m grateful for the memories and experiences. Leaving Colorado to find the southwest has been a seamless, beautiful transition. I’m not that far away.

Some friendships and family members are meant to be let go. It’s hard because you love them, but if there isn’t reciprocal, healthy communication, mutual respect, connection and even energy exchanges - it just brings you down on a soul level, and that doesn’t add well-being, value, fulfillment or purpose to your path.

Hibernation is necessary. Sometimes short winter days beg for all day pajamas, working from bed, healing tears of release, going inward and taking inventory of who you are and who you want to be.

Lean into the heavy, darker sides of yourself to find ways to shed that skin and emerge lighter and more beautiful.

Longer, sunnier days are ahead. We’ve made it through the darkest time.

Alpenglow Skin Spa 12/08/2022

Hello from Santa Fe, I’m Courtney✨

Everyone who knows me knows, I’m all or nothing.

My intuition about most things is accurate, if not creepily psychic to a degree.

I’m a non-religious Jesus lover, I don’t relate to church establishments or goodie-2-shoes types. Life is too messy for that.

I’m so free spirited that I take big risks on a moments notice, like moving to foreign countries or starting businesses that I’m passionate about.

I’ve learned that hypersensitivity is a super-power, you feel everything, you miss nothing. You dream in hyper-color.

The most important thing in life to me, besides skin health- is being with those who cherish, support, love and see you for who you are. Walk away if you aren’t being valued. Don’t waste a drop on people who don’t reciprocate, communicate or care about you.

This life is meant for adventure, learning lessons, finding purpose, loving and being present. I hope that for all of you.

Xo Courtney Parkhill

What happens to the skin at high altitude, especially during the colder months and how can we combat these common skin ailments? ⛰️

Essentially cooler temps, less oxygen, lower humidity & 300 sunny days a year results in a more dry, sun-damaged, wrinkled, dehydrated, flaky, uncomfortably red & chapped appearance that can only be treated with specific ingredients formulated for this harsh climate🏔

The barrier function of the skin is easily compromised due to TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss) which is essentially the skin losing to much water. Although drinking more water is important, it won’t topically fix TEWL on the surface of your skin- you’ll need a water binding serum to bind hydration and increase free water levels so the skin cells will plump immediately🏔

Nosebleeds, headaches, chapped lips, cracked skin and snow burns are also common in this climate so you’ll want to use this humidifier every night while you sleep. Link in bio for my favorite one🏔

You’ll need to wear a daily sunscreen all year long, plus continue getting your annual skin checks at the dermatologist for skin cancer prevention🏔

Don’t sweat these common ailments, I created my skincare line for this specific climate and my beloved clientele🏔

Let me know how I can help you achieve the skin of your dreams🏔🏔🏔
